Ali is AMAZING! Not only did she quickly relieve the pain in my back/neck but she also asked a TON of questions to pinpoint and diagnose what I may have been doing at home which was slowing my recovery. She makesherself available for any questions in between appointments and often checks in to see how you are feeling. I can’t say enough good things about her.

I love Ali so much! Went in for some microdiscectomy post op PT. Her bedside manner is top notch. I’ve never been a fan of physical therapy because I never felt that it really did anything, but with Ali I actually experienced results. I’d recommend her to absolutely anyone.

She was barely in the room and didn’t listen to me. She also didn’t explain anything and I had to ask. The office was not great either. Pretty much a waste of time and money.

Alexandra is a great professional, I felt all the time that I was in good hands because she knows what she is doing when she treats you and you feel it. The receptionists were nice and I waited 5 min asmaximum. I was there for a knee problem and I will be under trearment, after a couple of sesions more I will update this review. Absolutely recommended!

My problem area did get better under her care. However, a few complaints. She sees so many patients at once. She'd bill my insurance for so many services and codes, often times things she had not even done for me. Thebilling department charged my card on file for slightly different amounts than the EOBs. She has a bit of a harsh personality and wants to get into your business. Eh.

Dr. Malkin was not only respectful, she was friendly and engaging. Her course of treatment really helped with my back and side problems, and she always kept me up to date on the progress we were making. She pushed me withoutmaking me feel awkward and she got to the root of the issues as opposed to just looking for the first thing to blame it on. If I ever need a PT again, I will go back! If you need a PT, I cannot recommend her enough!

Ali was seriously incredible. She listened to me and recommended wonderful steps to help with my hip pain. I will continue seeing her until I have healed from my injury and I cannnot recommend her enough. Knowledgable, with a wonderful bedside manner and easy to talk to.

Ms. Malkin is very professional and knowledgable in respect to her field. As a new patient, I hope to have continued good experiences and results with the therapy sessions. I will note thou, that the patient checkup rooms could use somerenovating/decorating. They appear dingy and not very pleasant to wait in. Otherwise, the front desk and main equipment area is fine.

The office is conveniently located. The front desk staff is friendly. The office manager introduced herself and is also very cordial. "Ally" is very thorough. She asked a bunch of questions really trying to figure out the issue, and offeredher e-mail for questions. I look forward to my next visit.

Ali was lovely. She was gentle, witty, and thorough. She explained her processes and made me feel like I had her complete focus when she was with me, despite the fact that she had several other patients to attend to. Iliked her a lot and I feel confident that her treatment will effectively heal my ankle. The office was clean and the staff was friendly, and it was a great experience.

Ali is great! She has really helped me through the phases of a stress fracture injury and is helping me get back to running safely. Everyone at the office has been really helpful and accommodating. Brian, another PT at the office,is great too. They have both talked me down when I was getting discouraged and kept me on the right track.
